A really awesome Martin

This is the second Martin I own. I wanted a guitar with some type of dark wood shading (i.e. Mahogany), I already have a Mahogany Ibanez but I just felt drawn to the Martin Koa pattern. I was not disappointed. I still have to have a set-up done on it as there is a fretbuzz when I play a Gadd5 chord; but I am very satisfied with the guitar

Pleased with purchase

I am very pleased with my Martin DXK2AE. I've been wanting a rugged guitar that can hold up to changes in humidity (especially when traveling around to different climates), and one that doesn't take a ton of upkeep. This one does it for me and has that wonderful mellow sound that I like in Martin guitars. I like the way it looks and feels, and the way it blends in when I'm playing with other instruments (ie, piano and other guitars). A perfect choice for me!

Great gift

I bought the guitar as a gift for my boyfriends birthday. It was shipped extremely fast, no damage, exactly what I ordered. I'm not a player, but from what i have heard him say he is nothing but happy about the guitar. It came almost perfectly tuned , no flaws, sounds great ! thanks !

martin dkx2ae

I wish I knew what HPL meant before I bought the instument- kind of misleading- Im almost ashamed to bring it out around family and friends who play- still it is a Martin and I guess I should trust their direction- It plays well and the workmanship is all solid and it has a nice look even though it's laminate- wish Martin made a dreadnought size gigbag also
